Compacting Spatial Views

    Spatial views are compacted with the POST /[bucket-name]/_design/[ddoc-name]/_spatial/_compact HTTP method and URI.


    Spatial views are not automatically compacted with data and indexes. Instead, each spatial view must be manually compacted.

    HTTP method and URI

    POST /[bucket-name]/_design/[ddoc-name]/_spatial/_compact


    To compact each spatial view, specify the compaction for the spatial view:


    This URL contains the following information:

    • [localhost]:8092

      localhost is the IP address for the local host. The port number, 8092, is unique to the spatial indexing system.

    • bucket_name

      The name of the bucket where the design document is configured.

    • ddoc_name

      The name of the design document that contains the spatial index or indexes that you want to compact.


    To send a request using curl:

    curl -u Administrator:password -X POST \ \
      -H 'Content-type: application/json'
